Good Luck was incredibly knowledgable, very personable, and we recommend him 100%!

We were impressed with Lion Kings communication with us before the trip and the service they provided. We saw the Big 5 and our guide made sure we saw everything we wanted to see. We saw more monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers, cheetahs and elephants than we ever imagined we would see. Got great photos! The accomodations were wonderful. We would definately choose Lion King again!

Really well organised trip, absolutely wonderful safari & accomodation.

Our trip was tailored to our needs, and we were able to add an extra day. We were unfortunate that our luggage did not arrive into the country, but on the first day, the Lion King driver picked us up & took us to the shops to buy the essentials. The Lion King drivers then collected our luggage when it arrived, and delivered it to the Serengeti airfield where we were able to collect it, en route to our accommodation, three days later. Although it wasn't very nice not having our luggage, Lion KIng took the stress out of it for us.

The actual safari was wonderful. Our driver Mashula was great, so knowledgable and knew all the right places to find the big five, and many more. It was great spending time with him and learning all about the animals & their surroundings, he is very friendly & we felt comfortable with him from the beginning.

The lodges we stayed in through Lion King were fanatstic. Very luxurious, with pools and really great fresh food in the restaurants.
We would throughly recommend booking your safari experience with Lion King.

The guide was AMAZING!!!

A safari in Tanzania is already a trip of a lifetime so i was excited to make it happen. A friend recommended Lion King adventures and they completely exceeded any expectations that i had. Our guide, Saleh, absolutely made our trip and i cannot thank him enough (i'm not much of a tipper but i left him a heavy one!). He was the most personable, kind and accommodating guide with eyes like a bald eagle, spotting things that we could barely see with binoculars! With some very long and bumpy drives, i could only imagine what it would be like if Saleh wasn't the way he was. He taught me some Swahili, i got to know more about him and his family alongside Tanzanian culture, and he was super knowledgable with everything we asked about the animals. We stayed in 3 lodges during our visit...

Tarangire Ndovu Tented Lodge (1 night) - So scenic and tranquil with great food and service

Nyota Luxury camp (2 nights) - This exceeded expectations with the beauty, friendly staff and the food was great... we had a private dinner while lightning was striking across the sky of the serengeti and wildebeest and buffalo were not more than 30m away (Maasai security were sharp!)

Ngorogoro Oledani Mountain Lodge - beautiful luxury rooms on a huge compound with exemplary service.

I proposed to my girlfriend on this trip and with the help of Saleh and Lion King adventures, it was an experience that we will never forget! Thank you so much for an amazing Safari!

if you book with Lion King, make sure you request Saleh as a tour guide if possible!

Amazing experience

Our guide, Joseph, was exceptional! He was extremely knowledgeable about the animals and plants. He was very easy going and friendly. The office staff, Caroline and Rose, were very responsive and helpful during the booking process. I feel that we got more than our money's worth. I would highly recommend this company.

We loved our experience in Tanzania with Khalifa. He was a wonderful tour guide and you could tell he had a lot of respect for the animals and their home. He was always able to answer our millions of questions about different animals to current politics or how to cook banana stew. Everywhere we stayed felt like luxury even though this was a mid level safari. Every meal was delicious and plentiful, but would have loved to try more traditional dishes.

Lion King does provide tipping etiquette for guides and accommodation on their website. If you add on additional activities, your tour guide is not the one accompanying you on these activities, so expect to pay additional tips on these days.

I would 100% recommend a safari in Tanzania with Lion King.

5-day’s privet safari with Lion King with a route and luxury lodges we have chosen. Lion King is responsive, very good exchanges and respectful of your budget! The safari lived up to our expectations.
2 days in Serengeti in the Fours saison lodge with extraordinary views of the savannah and a warm welcome. Attentive staff everywhere and a guide, Nasser, very professional, he knows the wildlife well, a faultless guide that we highly recommend. We were able to observe many species and scenes of wild life, especially the lions during mating season, just incredible. We were in the front row with our guide who always knew how to place our car in the right place. In addition to the more common species, we had the chance to observe giraffes and elephants at length. Eye-popping images and lots of souvenir photos. An unforgettable visit to an unforgettable Massai village. A very beautiful dream trip!

Happy to recommend Lion King to all my friends who want to have a safari in Tanzania!

A great safari experience and wonderful memories. The guide is very reliable and actively helped us arrange various things. The accommodation environment was amazing and we saw a lot of animals as wished . Although we encountered some unexpected things along the way, Lion King actively helped us coordinate and solve them. I am very happy to have chosen Lion King. Highly recommended:)

Professional, organised and knowledgable.

We had a fantastic experience with Lion King Safaris. Our guide, Pius, went above and beyond to make sure that our safari experience was perfect. He was so professional and helpful throughout. We valued his knowledge of the wildlife in the different parks and he was entertaining company for the 5 days we were away.
We stayed in some fantastic places and valued the excellent organisation of the company as our trip was seamless from start to finish. We were lucky to see the Big Five, and Pius made it his mission to ensure that we saw as many different animals as possible. We would really highly recommend Lion King safaris - they will work tirelessly to meet your every need.

Lion king - The kings of Serengeti

Our experience with Lion King has truly been fantastic. The company takes care of every small detail on the trip including departure timings, comfort in vehicle and guides you perfectly for a great Game Drive Safari. Their drivers/ Guides are extremely well versed with the nuances of the Serengeti and leave no stone unturned to ensure one gets to see the best of what Serengeti has to offer. We had Mwita with us who was exceptional! Thanku lion king and Thnku Serengeti for a spectacular trip and until we meet again!!!

Lion King provides exceptional service and once-in-a-lifetime experiences

Lion King Adventures planned the trip of a lifetime for us. We opted for the 8-day safari and beach tour, and it was the best trip we have ever taken, thanks to Lion King. We looked at several tour companies prior to booking our trip and we decided to go with Lion King because they have great reviews online, their prices are competitive, and they are a local company based out of Tanzania. Our tour consultant, Pendo, booked the most beautiful hotels for us, plus all of our meals and transportation. Whenever I had a question about how to prepare for the trip, Pendo was always more than helpful. Our safari guide, Ozzy, was knowledgeable and has a keen eye for spotting even the most elusive animals. Ozzy always made sure we were front and center for every animal viewing. Furthermore, I felt safe and cared for the entire trip. I would absolutely book another safari with Lion King Adventures.
